"Hold on to me and don't let go!" Yichen managed to squeeze these words out of his mouth.
Yun Tianyou held his wrist in return and felt its intense and constant trembling. As he looked up at his brother's small face which was currently drenched in cold sweat, his heart instantly ached!
He gritted his teeth as he tried to figure out a way to climb back into the capsule.
He knew that Yichen could not hold on for long.
Unfortunately, the freely suspended capsule had been tipped to the side; it was no longer steady. He could feel it rocking with just a slight movement.
After a few attempts, he gave up. For now, he quickly composed himself as he tried to come up with a way for them to get out of their perilous situation!
Beads of perspiration littering his face fell and were carried away by the high winds into the vast skies as he raced against time for a solution to their dangerous quandary.
He was admittedly partly nervous and afraid. He weighed the consequences in his head; there was a limit to what a child could do. Although Yichen was unwilling to let go of him, prolonged stress on the arm due to his heavy weight could cause it to cramp, get dislocated, or even be fractured!
The two would eventually fall due to Yichen losing control of his arm!
Yichen, whose strength was almost exhausted by now from holding on to his brother, gritted his teeth as he willed himself not to collapse!
Investing his body and mind into holding on to his brother, he simply had no strength left in him to think of anything else. The situation, thus, turned into a deadlock!
Yun Shishi felt her way around the haunted house for quite some time after being separated from the two little boys.
Perhaps it was due to another matter completely stressing her out, but despite being alone in the dark haunted house, her fear of the terrifying props was now completely gone!
Therefore, when she carelessly fell onto the ground and accidentally touched a fake decomposing corpse, she felt no fear at all!
The only thought in her mind was how the two kids were faring.
Did anything happen to them?
She was worried – worried to the point of almost breaking down.
She relied purely on her poor sense of direction and eventually happened upon an emergency stop with much difficulty. No staff was stationed there, however. Luckily, there was an emergency map on the table. She grabbed the map, as if she had discovered a valuable treasure, and referred to the escape route indicated on it. When she finally got out of the haunted house, she noticed that her surroundings were in chaos; cries for help were heard from time to time.
With her voice trembling from anxiety, she tried to search for any traces of the two boys within the masses.
"I'm sorry; have you seen two six-year-olds…
"Hello. May I ask if you've seen two children… "
Many turned to her indifferently.
While she was under extreme distress, she overheard someone talking in the crowd. "Let's go have a look! The Ferris wheel malfunctioned, and two children are stuck up there!"
The moment she heard that, she scoured through the crowd without a care, grabbed the speaker's collar, and frantically asked, "Did you just say that there are two children stuck up in the Ferris wheel?"
"What do they look like?"
"I can't see them clearly. I only know that the two are children…"
After the person said that, she dashed in the direction of the Ferris wheel.
The amusement ride was not far from the haunted house, so she quickly arrived at its location. Li Hanlin also happened to arrive at this moment with several security personnel. The well-trained security guards astutely cordoned off the Ferris wheel. Yun Tianyou was clear about him being followed by an unidentified armed person, who seemed to be out to kill him. Because of this, the agent was on high alert, and regardless of a person's identity, even if it were a child, he had the guards prevent them from getting close to the Ferris wheel!
